Reviewed by Kelly Spence
If you love the intricate, woven look of French knit jewelry but don't know the first thing about knit jewelry making, then the French Knitter from Clover Needlecraft is the tool you've been waiting for! This handy beaded jewelry maker allows you to create dazzling knit accessories from nylon, yarn, embroidery thread, monofilament, and just about any small cord or string you can think of. The product includes three interchangeable heads—a 4-peg, 5-peg, and 6-peg—so you can create a variety of looks depending on the density of your cord. No knitting or crocheting experience is required! This convenient little round loom makes knitting beaded jewelry a piece of cake. Just drop beads between the pegs as you go to effortlessly incorporate them into your knit creation, and before you know it you have the start of a necklace, bracelet, or earrings!
Turn a plain, single strand of beads into a swirling web of crystals, pearls, and gems. Make a woven beaded chain to display a lovely pendant or focal bead. Use fishing line to create the effect of "floating" beads. Combine fibers for a fun eclectic look or add sequins for some extra sparkle. There are so many possibilities with the French Knitter! Everyone who sees your gorgeous French knit jewelry will be convinced you bought it at a boutique, and you'll be able to proudly say you made it yourself!
